  • Knee Joint
  • The bi-articular antagonist muscles' co-contraction around the knee joint during the squat lifting and the eccentric co-contraction of the gastrocnemius and the biceps femoris were found important for maintaining the straight leg during the stoop lifting. (nih.gov)
  • In conclusion, the knee extension which is prominent kinematics during the squat lifting was produced by the contributions of the kinetic factors from the hip and ankle joints(extensor moment and power generation) and the lumbar extension which is prominent kinematics during the stoop lifting could be produced by the contributions of the knee joint kinetic factors(flexor moment, power absorption, bi-articular muscle function). (nih.gov)
  • The articular disks of the knee-joint are called menisci because they only partly divide the joint space. (wikipedia.org)
  • Especially acute injuries (typically in younger, more active patients) can lead to displaced tears which can cause mechanical symptoms such as clicking, catching, or locking during motion of the knee joint. (wikipedia.org)
  • injuries
  • Care was given to elderly, adults and infants for Orthopedic diseases benign and malignant and for injuries ranging from sports accidents to war casualties including rehabilitation of amputees. (wikipedia.org)
  • Joint
  • Many studies have evaluated metacarpophalangeal joint (MP) range of motion following Swanson arthroplasty. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • The developed model allows extracting, from the COR positions, a complete characterization of the limb motion in terms of kinematic variables (angles, velocities and accelerations of arm joints), dynamic variables (joint torques) and energetic variables (potential and kinetic energy and powers related to each joint). (nih.gov)
  • In this study, kinematics and kinetics of the lower extremity joint and the lumbar lordosis during two different symmetrical lifting techniques(squat and stoop) were examined using the three-dimensional motion analysis. (nih.gov)
  • Correlation coefficient was calculated to explain the role of lower limb joint motion in relation to the lumbar lordosis. (nih.gov)
  • Most rehabilitation programs combine efforts to protect the joint with muscle strengthening and range of motion. (wikipedia.org)
  • Femoroacetabular Impingement (FAI), or hip impingement syndrome, may affect the hip joint in young and middle-aged adults and occurs when the ball shaped femoral head rubs abnormally or does not permit a normal range of motion in the acetabular socket. (wikipedia.org)
  • Joint effusion and limited range of motion are common associated features. (wikipedia.org)
  • The three-joint complex that results is sometimes referred to as the "articular triad. (wikipedia.org)
  • This is the region known as the 'neutral zone', which is the motion region of the joint where the passive osteoligamentous stability mechanisms exert little or no influence. (wikipedia.org)
  • Flexibility or limberness refers to the range of movement in a joint or series of joints, and length in muscles that cross the joints to induce a bending movement or motion. (wikipedia.org)
  • Overall flexibility should be developed with specific joint range of motion needs in mind as the individual joints vary from one to another. (wikipedia.org)
  • Dynamic flexibility is classified as the ability to complete a full range of motion of a joint. (wikipedia.org)
  • Each individual is born with a particular range of motion for each joint in their body. (wikipedia.org)
  • Adjustment shall be differentiated from spinal manipulation in that the adjustment can only be applied to a vertebral malposition with the express intent to improve or correct the subluxation, whereas any joint, subluxated or not, may be manipulated to mobilize the joint or to put the joint through its range of motion. (wikipedia.org)
  • The intention of a chiropractic adjustment is to affect or correct the alignment, motion and/or function of a vertebral joint. (wikipedia.org)
  • This is probably because there are many more tissues restraining a spinal motion segment than an independent MCP joint. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, after re-examining the original studies on which the kinematic models of joint manipulation were based, Evans and Breen argued that the optimal prethrust position is actually the equivalent of the neutral zone of the individual joint, which is the motion region of the joint where the passive osteoligamentous stability mechanisms exert little or no influence. (wikipedia.org)
  • Factors
  • Concerning prognostic factors, the improved group tended to show preoperative good range of motion and unilateral involvement. (biomedsearch.com)
  • A combination of certain factors may predispose to some form of FAI, predominantly, a marginal developmental hip abnormality together with environmental factors such as activities involving recurrent motion of the legs within a supraphysiologic range. (wikipedia.org)
  • Shoulder
  • The supraspinatus resists downward motion while the shoulder is relaxed as well as when carrying weight. (wikipedia.org)
  • This stress consists of repeating the same shoulder motions frequently, such as overhead throwing, rowing, and weightlifting. (wikipedia.org)
  • Posture
  • Increasing the range of motion creates good posture and develops proficient performance in everyday activities increasing the length of life and overall health of the individual. (wikipedia.org)
  • transverse
  • CONCLUSION: Our motion analysis study found the Aspen collar to be superior to the other collars when measuring restriction of movement of the cervical spine in all planes, particularly the sagittal and transverse planes, while the Aspen Vista was the least effective collar. (biomedsearch.com)
  • continuous passiv
  • Once the immobilization period has ended, physical therapy involves continuous passive motion (CPM) and/or low impact activities, such as walking or swimming. (wikipedia.org)
  • surgery
  • These erosions were between 5 and 10 mm in depth and became apparent at an average of 15 months (range, 6 to 24 months) following surgery. (biomedsearch.com)
  • The patient's mean age at surgery was 42 +/- 8 years (range 32-58 years), and the mean follow-up was 10 +/- 6 years (range 2-18 years). (biomedsearch.com)
  • All stems appeared radiographically stable and one stem was graded nonintegrated but stable.Five patients had revision surgery: one on the femoral side (for posttraumatic fracture) and four on the acetabular side.Considering stem revision for aseptic loosening as the end point, survivorship was 100% (range, 95.4%-99.9%) at 10 years. (nih.gov)
  • structures
  • p. 218) The International Chiropractor's Association (ICA) states that the "chiropractic spinal adjustment is unique and singular to the chiropractic profession", and that it "is characterized by a specific thrust applied to the vertebra utilizing parts of the vertebra and contiguous structures as levers to directionally correct articular malposition. (wikipedia.org)
  • limits
  • Unlike some other rheumatological conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, laboratory findings are usually within normal ranges or limits. (wikipedia.org)
